Two Arrested After Pursuit With Beaver Dam Police In Stolen Illinois Vehicle

(Beaver Dam) Two people were taken into custody Tuesday afternoon after fleeing Beaver Dam police in a stolen vehicle. Around 3:38pm, an officer attempted to stop the 2008 Nissan on Green Valley Road near Dodge Drive for speeding and failure to stop at a signal. Chief John Kreuziger says the driver, a 23-year-old male from Chicago, failed to stop for police and accelerated away. During the pursuit, police were informed that the vehicle was listed as stolen out of Illinois. Kreuziger says the driver continued to elude officers and failed to stop at several intersections in the city. He says the vehicle was eventually disabled by tire deflation devices along County Highway W just east of High Point Road by the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office. Both the driver and a female passenger were arrested. Kreuziger says the driver was taken to the Dodge County Jail and is facing charges of felony Fleeing, Operating without Owners’ Consent and several other traffic related citations.
